On July 7, 2004, “the DOD [Department of Defense] established the Combatant Status Review Tribunal (CSRT), which in theory gave each Guantanamo detainee notice of the factual basis for his detention and classification as an enemy combatant. CSRT determinations of enemy combatant status and prosecutions of detainees at Guantanamo commenced under the Military Commissions Act of 2006.”
